Ebel, Adam Human Ancestry ANT 125 11/19/2014 An Article Review Over Vanpool’s Academic Article The article "The signs of the sacred: Identifying shamans using archaeological evidence", written by Christine S. Vanpool was an interesting article to read. Christina S. Vanpool briefly explains what shamanic sacra can and generalized themes that be used to determine the presence of shamans in a culture. This article discusses the relations between religious figures such as priests and the shaman-healers. Christine S. Vanpool also talks about how archaeologists can show that shamanism is present and how this can help with regional and anthropological problems. Vanpool does this by giving reliable information from many sources and then uses the
An experiential account from a single case study has been used, based on secondary data from a semi-structured interview. The qualitative method of interpretive phenomenological analysis (IPA) was used with an ideographic focus to identify themes and then organise these into clusters. IPA is still a recently developed research method, its expansion could lead to valuable insights into the effects quality of friendship can have on the social development of an individual. Introduction There are a myriad of interpersonal relationships an individual can engage in; work relationships, intimate relationships, or friendships. All these relationships are at the heart of our existence and play a vital role in shaping our lives (Berscheid and Peplau, 2002).

Narrative Therapy and Its Growing Success Stories and Literature Kierra Morris Liberty University Dr. Stephen Ford October 11, 2013 Narrative Therapy and Its Growing Success Stories and Literature Part I Introduction Within family therapy there is a therapeutic model that is in the “forefront of today’s theory and practice and it centers on the metaphor of narrative, that encourages the belief that our knowledge of reality is organized and maintained through the stories one tells about themselves and the lives they live” (Goldberg&Goldberg, 2013, p.395). There are many different forms of narrative that counselors can use to help and guide their clients. The stories that clients tell are important because: “Our stories link life events together in a particular sequence to make sense of how and why we live the lives we do. This ongoing process of weaving together events includes stories about us, our abilities, competencies, actions, relationships, achievements, and failures, and much else. Certain dominant stories explain our current actions and impact our future lives” (Goldberg&Goldberg, 2013, p. 395).

What role do the flashbacks to Zeitoun's life in Syria play in the book? These flashbacks exist partly to render Zeitoun as a fully rounded character, as any literary writer has an imperative to do. However, they also fulfill Eggers' responsibility to represent Zeitoun's foreignness. Although he sometimes downplays the legitimate differences between Islam and American Christianity or secularism, the same cannot be said of Zeitoun's life experience, which is rendered in intimate detail. These flashbacks also recreate for the reader the same experience that Kathy has when she visits Syria.
Anwar Sadat, Aung San Suu Kyi and Faith Bandler in their respective speeches “statement to the Knesset”, “Keynote Address at the Beijing World Conference on Women” and “Faith, Hope and Reconciliation”, all skillfully manipulate the art of rhetoric to explore the deeply held ideals of courage and unity. In doing so, they built their own ‘ethos’ as a speaker and establish a ‘pathos’ with their audience, which not only allows them to explore the importance of these ideals, but allows their texts to be relevant to modern contexts. Sadat uses anecdote and metaphor to explore the notion of courage. Sadat’s motives to negotiate a peace treaty were highly criticized by both the Israeli and Arab community. To combat this, Sadat uses an anecdote in response to the question of what he would do if Israel offered him an invitation; he states “I will accept it immediately.

Linda provided a detailed and idiosyncratic description of the aspects of the therapy which were most helpful for her. A cross-case comparison with other cases in this series suggests several interesting features which are worthy of further investigation. Specifically, the use of a shared theoretical framework and an egalitarian therapeutic relationship were helpful. As with other cases in this series, the client experienced positive changes in her interpersonal relationships suggesting that this outcome of TA therapy warrants further investigation Introduction This is the fourth and final Hermeneutic Single-Case Efficacy Design (Elliott, 2002) study in the current case series conducted by the author as part of his doctoral research investigating the process and outcome of TA psychotherapy for depression. This case presents an ambiguous picture of change where an initial examination of the
